Take a tour of MacBook Pro
Note: This guide is for the MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C). If you’re not sure which MacBook Pro you have or want to find information about other models, see the Apple Support article Identify your MacBook Pro model.
The MacBook Pro has the following features.
Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports: Charge your computer, transfer data at Thunderbolt speeds (up to 40 Gbps), connect to a display or projector, and more. Not all models have the same number of ports.
3.5 mm headphone jack: Plug in stereo headphones or external speakers to listen to your favorite music or movies.
Microphones: Talk with friends or record audio.
Touch Bar: The Touch Bar at the top of the keyboard dynamically adapts to the app you’re using. The Touch Bar is an extension of the keyboard that presents intuitive shortcuts and application controls exactly when and where you need them. You can use familiar gestures like slide and tap in the Touch Bar. See MacBook Pro keyboard with the Touch Bar and Touch ID.
FaceTime HD camera: Make FaceTime video calls or take pictures and video. If the light is glowing, the camera is on. See FaceTime.
Touch ID (power button): Press to turn on your MacBook Pro (or just lift the lid or press any key). When you first start up or restart, you need to log in by typing your password. To learn more about how to use Touch ID, see MacBook Pro keyboard with the Touch Bar and Touch ID.
Force Touch trackpad: Control your MacBook Pro with gestures. The entire trackpad surface acts as a button so you can easily click anywhere. For more about using gestures, see MacBook Pro Trackpad.
